for another take, unskewed polls.com, a way to reweight the polls-- the fox news poll has romney down 5 points and suggests romney it down. and one who was not a-- and a pollster for gary hart and so on, he wrote in great part, what the media are doing are newspapers are supposed to be broke, instead spending money on polls in virginia, ohio and florida where obama clearly is clobbering romney in terms of television buys, you're down 8 points in ohio must be losing nationwide. it's not wrong, but it's obviously to suggest that romney is a goner. >> rick: kirsten, do you agree we'll hear stories about a tightening of the race because the media want to generate ratings and sell newspapers and magazines or perhaps a guilt on part of the mainstream media maybe we should be covering this a little bit more fairly than we have been? >>pist-- i think that sometimes media polls can be a little cooked. i have a friend, he used to do it for one of the media organizations and used to say, ding, here, it's been cooked, here is what you wanted. but the thing is, nate silver did a good analysis of the polls
without ohio. mitt romney down by 8 points. abby how is he going to come back? >> it is going to be very difficult. all i can say at this point he's not going to win on electability factor. he won't win on the relatability factor. >> eliot: likability, foreign policy economics. >> where he has some room to grow, i think is on substance. he needs to win the substance debate. that will be shown in upcoming debates. >> eliot: after watching for two years, he has to win the substance debate. he has how many days left? >> he's gotta provide more of a detailed, consistent plan that people can ingrate. >> he tried that with the secret fund-raising video. he said no, i agree. as one of my colleagues, it is romney has been all attack and no substance for this race. i think in ohio, it's quite interesting. vice president biden as we reported recently is living in ohio now. and then after those polls came out, a romney advisor told "buzzfeed" that romney's internal polling they claim is within the margin of error so
uglier in massachusetts. >>> and ann romney hits the late night circuit, sitting down with jay leno giviing her take on th 47% punches. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get to our first reading on -- reads of the morning. president obama makes another trip to ohio. romney definitely needs to put ohio back in play. the president simile wants to put it away. >>> today romney is out with a straight-to-camera ad. the ad itself is a bit of an admission that the 478% comments have done serious damage and the attacks on his personal wealth are also sinking in. take a look at the ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class fami families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> worth noting, that's his first candidate-to-camera ad. this morning the obama campaign have another ad out hitting on the 47% comment. this is what it looks like. >> when mitt romney
state in the last three or four elections. a poll among likely voters that has mitt romney down eight points. the trend in polling in that state, all the polls, obama is way, internal polling has obama ahead in the mid to high single digits. today ohio does not look the same as florida, for example. florida looks like a true toss up. colorado looks like a toss up. nevada. ohio, by the numbers does not and i would say and we've talked about this, without ohio there are scenarios mitt romney can be elect elected president in terms of winning 270 electoral votes. he needs ohio or i needs to find a way in some combination of wisconsin, iowa, michigan or pennsylvania. >> before i let you go, jeff, jump in here as well. paul ryan has spoken out on that incredible missed call at the end of the packers/seahawks game. the nfl is saying they stand by the call, at least roger goodell is under a lot of pressure. this is paul ryan in cincinnati. >> going to start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a b
to disavow the statement means they ultimately agreed with governor romney. but i think what bogged down, to be honest -- >> let'set pastthat >>e teacnd c back to the things the president talked about today, iran. again, close to a nuclear weapon. supporting terrorism around the world. syria, up in flames. the president calling the step down, assad, seemingly nowhere ra fnghi oln. wn let's take a step back and evaluate where we are in the world. there's a sense things are a little mess? >> do you think the american people want a third war? this is a question that the president obama responded on "60 minutes." is governor mn rlly epoo wh iran right now and open up a regional war? >> so governor romney has not advocated military action and any suggestion that he has by the president or his surrogates is a mischaracterization. >> what would he do on iran. >>hatoverr romn's er, is a weak posture in the region makes war more likely. let me be specific on that. if we continually broadcast as we have over the last several years that the military oion is the -- is something the u.s atee communic
insured. >> and here's some numbers, larry, that show you why that is mitt romney's message rather than tax cuts. you can't compare in the state of ohio where a new york times cbs poll shows mitt romney down by ten percentage points, president obama ahead on the economy, 6 in 10 voters, nearly 6 in 10, that is, said mitt romney's policies would favor the rich and mitt romney doesn't care about people like them. president obama's driving that message, going after mitt romney's predictions that he'll be tough on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe th
to this poll in ohio. let's gather around the water cooler to watch ann romney sitting down with jay leno. mrs. romney shared some secrets of her 43 year marriage to mitt, including the thriftiness of a man worth an estimated quarter of a billion dollars. ? would you say he's frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> cheap? really? >> yeah. do you want to know what he does when we leave the house? he turns off the hot water house. do you know wlae does -- >> he turns off the hot water heat sner. >> when we come back, he forgets that he's got to turn the hot water heat other and he says cold showers are not that bad. >> talk about the significance of if he gets elected being the first mormon president. >> well, you know, i love the fact that we have the first african-american president, that that means to me that we're leaving prejudices behind. i would hope that if mitt were elected we would see more of the same. that prejudices are being left behind. >> i thought you said you'd like to see more of the first african-american president just to see -- >> no, get it right. >> if elected as first lady, what w
nationally at 46%, romney is down by a point in ohio. that's not great news for him, but it's not a sea change in the race. what's happened? people are feeling better about the economy. consumer confidence is up, and people have not been convinced that mitt romney would be any better than barack obama. cheryl: but you know what, scott? 60% of americans right now believe that we're in a recession still. i mean, maybe we're not technically in one, but americans still feel that way. explain to me the numbers behind this. >> well, 60% say we're still in a recession, that's not a great number. it was over 70% a couple of years ago, so the trend is moving a little bit better. the number of people who say the economy will be stronger in a year is 36% now, that's up a little bit from earlier in the year. so we're seeing maybe not good economic news or good economic reception, but people are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. and, again, it comes back to a comparison. people don't think they're better off than they were four years ago, they don't think they're worse off. only a th
so much for your time. nice to see you. so just minutes from now, mitt romney will sit down with nbc's brian williams to offer his ideas for turning away our failing schools. it's part of nbc's education nation summit and we'll take that interview live from the new york public library as soon as it happens. but joining me right now is u.s. secretary of education arne duncan. it's great to have you here. mitt romney and others have accused of president of putting teachers unions ahead of school kids, the prime example what we've seen out of chicago that put some 350,000 students out in the cold with no classroom to go to. what do you say to the krcritic that are using that example? >> it's a false choice and we all have to work together on behalf of children. obviously no one wants a strike. teachers did not want it. but at the end of the day, chicago got to a great place. they have a great contract that honors and respects teachers and values as the professionals they are and it continued to help drive the reform movement in chicago. so we need to put politics and ideology to the sid
, showing rney down 8. ohio has been a problem for romney sce thema w ll midwestern states it with us the closest one where rick santorum nearly pulled off an upset. it's certainly the toughest in thbadleground. the problem for romney is if he est simile one state away from a win. it's not a florida or virginia. he's a wisconsin away, a nevada away. that's the real problem here. the romney campaign needs ohio back. like this line yestday, they keisd t hmer ones >> he's got one new idea. i admit this. he has one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks onising taxes will help growhe >>no. >> ryan's expression back there when he looks over at portman, kind of intriguing. it would be curious what a thought bubble would be going on over there. but it's a little bitf a change for romney. est rsi t n been accusing t citing increases, i thinking about the health care law, et cetera. a romney adviser put out a memo yesterday explaining how capital gains are taxed. as they say, if you're e
points, some down to about three, four. this average is right at about five points. governor romney also bringing out some other people on the trail with him today. >> cannot aforfour more years of barack obama failed policy. we have need real recovery. >> things i'm baffled by is the existence of the skills gaffe, at the same time as we have this crazy unemployment. something is fundamentally disconnected. >> okay, the first guy we probably know if you are a golfer. jack nicklaus, golfing, second guy had to look twice. discovery channel "dirty jobs" host. steve hayes, "weekly standard." a.b. stoddarde, associate editor of hill. and kirsten powers from daily beast. she sat down and said i'll get all the e-mail. i'm in charles krauthammer's chair. yom kippur ends at sunset. >> the empty chair. >> left it in his honor. >> bret: what about today on his trail? ohio, the importance. >> ohio is crucial. if you look at the polls there is so much discussion of the polls, conservatives who believe that democrats are oversampled none are trustworthy. you have the main stream medi media. the truth
that in the next sit down, if you will, but it seems to me it's important that if governor romney is in an interesting position, at least in economics, finds himself in the unique position having the same disadvantages of senator mccain, and governor romney is still running against george w. bush with economic policies. >> yes, but that was -- that's been true in the past, and many presidential changes -- for example, think about president reagan, he was running against the catastrophic effects of nixon's wage on price controls lasting up to 1980 and carter. the "new york times," i have to remind you, the "new york times" on the eve of the election between reagan and carter had it too close to call. lou: the third debate? >> that is right. lou: i know it's right. up next, governor romney trailing in the polls, but does history show come from behind wins are possible? as we disused, there -- discussed, there is history here. we'll have the report. are taxpayer dollars -- they call it art, but looks like obscenity to me, but there we are. we'll look at the ways in which the obama ad
. >> that comes down to the two theories of the race. one was right, one was wrong. the romney theory, tell ople it's okay even though the president's a nice guy to vote against him because everyone's primed to vote against him. the democrats went into the convention realizing they needed to make a substantive case and tear down romney's agenda. romney needs to build that up again. >> have you everybody observed, mortimer, how -- have you observed, mortimer, how much the president relies on a teleprompter and of course romney probably less so? but he's been out there in the field. obama really hasn't been debating, and he doesn't have a teleprompter during the debate. >> he won't have a teleprompter, but let's face it, he is an articulate speaker and i'm sure he'll practice enough so he doesn't need one. i have a slightly different view of what romney has to do. he has to establish himself as a credible candidate and credible occupant of the presidency. that is not something he has done just yet. if he comes across forcefully enough and with enough clarity on his program, then a lot of people wi
. that is why we are seeing both candidates, both the president and mitt romney, will be down a lot. we saw mitt romney in pennsylvania but we likely will not see him again until wednesday. the same thing with the president. he will campaign in nevada on fund. both candidates are pulling up and doing a lot of debate prep because they know it is very high stakes for them. >>shepard: you can sense they have turned up the heat. i was listening to the sound bite that carl cameron read in the last block. a lot of republicans have been saying, go harder, go harder, go harder, mitt romney. he was going harder right there. you heard what he was saying about the president. the president things the killing of the diplomat is a "been in -- "bump in the road." it is a turning up of the volume. >>guest: that is ironic. in the last week there has been a bit of a reversal in what voters thing of mitt romney on terrorism versus the president. for a long-term it was the president's number one extent. the polls have reversed. on the same point, the polls have shown a little bit of an increase for the president on
candidate has ever become president without carrying ohio. recent polls show romney is down in the state by anywhere from 4 to 7 points against the president. so he's not doing great in ohio but he's faring well financially after a trip to los angeles over the weekend. romney brought in $6 million in just one night at a fund-raiser in beverly hills where about 1500 people paid up to $50,000 each to see the candidate speak. ann romney ran into a little trouble when her plane had to make an emergency landing this weekend. she is safe and sound but her husband was naturally a little bit nervous especially because he cannot figure out why airplane windows don't go down. romney told the "los angeles times" that's the biggest problems with a plane in trouble is you can't get anymore oxygen on the plane because the windows do not roll down. obviously one of the many reasons that airplane windows don't open is because at that altitude, there's not enough oxygen to get passengers any air. we're back with more bill after
or taken down an ad? >> i don't. and you know, keep in mind the very first ad that came from the romney campaign during this campaign cycle was an ad that took president obama out of context. you recall this was an ad that used a clip of obama back in the '08 campaign talking about john mccain and what john mccain had to say about the economy, but in the context of that romney ad, it only presented the words as if they were coming right out of the president's mouth and that wasn't the case. i've tried to go back to the romney campaign and say was this the ad that you corrected or removed. they just haven't gotten back to me on that. but anderson, mii mean, the rean why this is so important and crucial to the romney campaign, this line of attack on welfare and on welfare reform, what they accuse the president of doing with welfare reform, it fits into a narrative that they've been trying to say about the president for weeks now and that is that the president encourages government dependency, that he would rather see people who are dependent on government than go back into the work force
and this afternoon mitt romney touched down in the battleground state of ohio. he met up with his vp pick on the second day of their campaign bus tour. nbc's ron mott is traveling with the ryan camp and joins us now with more from the buckeye state. good afternoon, ron. the last time we saw mitt and paul together was way back on september the 1st. can you give us the feel for what their reunion was like today because i have to say we saw pictures earlier and it wasn't the most thrilling event i have ever seen. >> reporter: well, back on september 1st they were in jacksonville together, and that crowd seemed a little more enthusiastic than this crowd. it was an outdoor event but it was a really tightly packed event in a concourse of a strip mall, if you will. here we're on the airfield at the dayton international, all the cheering really went up into the air and didn't quite play as energetic as the crowd did 3 1/2 weeks ago. but the republicans are saying this is what the governor and congressman ryan need to do is campaign together because the two of them together on the stage, there's m
saw at the top, mr. romney doubled down today with cnn's jim acosta on that now debunked ad claiming that president obama is taking the work requirement out of welfare. in addition, as we said, there's new polling out tonight with a special focus on the economy. i talked about it earlier with chief national correspondent john king and chief political analyst gloria borger. so john, new polling out today from the "washington post" focuses on two of the most critical states in the election cycle, obviously ohio and florida. what do they show? >> they show bad news for governor romney heading into the big week of the first debate. ohio without a doubt a must-win state for governor romney. here's the new "the washington post" poll. you see the numbers right here. the president above 50, six-point lead in the state of ohio. that's one poll. but if you put together what we call a poll of polls, looking at now a half dozen polls conducted over the past two weeks, look what you get. a six-point lead for the president of the united states and again, a must-win state for mitt romney. that is t
hands down every time. >> bill: if you notice the media, all they do is attack romney. >> yeah. >> bill: that's all they do. they don't ever go over obama's record in any way, shape or form. i said in 2008 journalism is dead. it's beyond. now they're an extension. nbc being the worst of them. >> the legacy of the failure of the dead journalists, for lack of a better term, or journalism is dead is what we see now. an uninformed populace. this is the real problem in america. look at world history, our history. when we're not politically informed we're at the mercy of that bumper sticker slogan. >> bill: see, this president lies. this president lies. >> yes, he does. he outright lies. >> bill: they lie and get away with it. >> they lie and get away with it, because really my coma toes hamster has more life than the media, more ability to ask a question. the com comatose hamster. >> it was widespread at the dnc. folks couldn't answer. >> there are a lot of people out there, though, that know the truth. >> bill: but it's us, that's it. >> well, it's up to us. >> bill: coming up, prominent po
the polls, i would say probably romney is down by 1, 1 1/2 at this point. >> agreed. >> bill: but i would say the debates are crucial. and i would say that the polls are based on a model that will not exist this year. especially after what we saw in 2010. you'd think they would have adjusted. >> turnout is everything. turnout in key states is critically important. in ohio, the obama ground game will be very good. they'll have a ton of union support. >> bill: what about the romney ground game? >> i checked on it today. by their account, they feel very strong going into it. they realize -- i mean, the romney people aren't saying, we're up by 4 or 5 points in these polls, but they're saying when the media writes every day that governor romney has lost the race because the polls say so, might as well not have an election, that they're wrong. >> don't take your election coverage from the establishment media. >> i didn't. i'm telling you what they said. >> don't let them dictate -- >> bill: i just watch you, imus and fox all day. >> really, in 40 years in america, i don't think i've ever seen t
this reflective democrats are weak attack anymore. the public is not buying it. and yet romney still is sort of acting like it's 1979 and he can just come up with these catch phrases. i don't want to apologize for i don't think it gets him too far down the road with independents, with anybody who reads or thinks for more than a few moments but he's stuck, he's in this groove he' been in for a year and a half now and he can't get out of it even though i agree with you, the speech anotth h said up to date. >> dana, this line of the president's apologiesed even though there's no evidence -- >> the original definition is to explain, doesn't mean to express contrition i think he's just saying i not going to explain. >> dana mill bank, professor michael eric dyson, and david corn, ank you all. >>> a big apple good-bye and a big hello to ohio, but is that battleground already sunk for the romney/rn ticket? stay with us. arins election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. >> if the president wins re-election, which is what i think will happen. [ ma
in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk to around the coffee the day after, you folks who talk about it on television, you're going to tell them who w
director. emily, you look at the polls and it appears that governor romney is way down when it comes to women especially single women. you not about to be swayed toward the romney catch, but if you were, what do you want to hear the governor talk about? >>guest: well, the way governor romney will portray himself is what he is messaging. president obama is coming through with an honest conversation for the american people, another opportunity for a conversation. the president did it at convention and will do it tomorrow night. from governor romney, the only final we saw him be honest is as you mentioned, 37 percent, 47 percent, he doesn't believe he needs to represent 47 percent of the american people. if i were the working mother, and i was part of the 47 percent, if i was a student as a single mother, as a single women, or deployed veteran, that is part of the 47 percent, i would not believe he is there to represent me. >>trace: the president says, sherry, on the specific faces, he is an average debater, and we know he is a good debater. the question is, does he have enough ammuniti
say the reason mr. romney is way down is because the screen that the pollsters use heavily favors the democrat. and in the last month or so, some polls had as many as 10% more democrats polled than republicans. i sent an e-mail to scott rasmussen yesterday and i asked what the breakdown was on how many republicans and democrats he does right now because many regard him as the most accurate. currently rasmussen polls 38% democrat. 36% republican. and 2026% -- 26% independent. so democrats, by two points in the rasmussen poll. >> gretchen: it's interesting because i think this story becomes bigger because what do these poll results do to the psyche of the american public when they continue to see these polls? is there some sort of a subliminal message there that if you keep seeing obama on top, obama on top, obama on top, you know, but it's worth asking that bigger question because it's more, i think, than just these daily numbers. i think psychologically, there is a big question there as well. dick morris weighed in on this earlier on our show. >> these pollsters are using the 2008
. great to to talk to you see you soon. >> thank you. bill: ann romney sitting down with jay leno, her first ever late night interview. on "the tonight show" talks about her would turn around the economy. she went back to the first night they met at a party to describe the skills he shows on the dance floor. >> for me it was love and for him too. >> was he a good dancer? >> you know, jay, he has got to be a better dancer. >> boy, that is political answer. that is a political answer. because i saw him dance when he came out at the republican convention. here, take a look. ♪ . [laughter] [applause] >> that is about as loose as i seen him. he was kicking back. >> that's mitt. >> that's him at home. bill: right on. stay tuned for that video. ann romney went on to talk about some of the shortcuts about raising five sons. including dressing them for church the night before. only needed to comb their hair in the morning. i ask you, mrs. maccallum. have you ever tried that? martha: no way. i get push back wearing a collar to church. i am chasing them to get a collar over their head at 9:15 o
to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor now replacing the outgoing democratic governor ed rendell, and i th r tmney campaig senses an opportunity here, but haveo advertisi dollars in. you have to back up that talk of edicti a w in pennsylvania hat the romney so far campaign has done that. i asked ayaide, well, do you have any plans to do that he said that's
this is dire news for the romney camp, potentially ten points down in ohio with less than six weeks to go until the election. we're going to play some tape here, you'll see where he was a short time ago, at an appearance east of cleveland, exact location, bedford heights, ohio. he's talking about unemployment and federal government waste. take a look. >> we have 47 different federal government training programs and they report to eight different agencies. they spent $18 billion on these programs. but too often they don't match the needs of our people. so i want to take those dollars and send them back to ohio, or each state, so they can fashion the programs to meet the needs of their own workers. >> and we told you again, live pictures, mitt romney, right here. we're going to look at this poll because this is the one that shows romney now ten points down in ohio. and, boom, here you go. this is from the new york times, cbs news, quinnipiac university. the question they posed, if the election were held today, for whom would you vote. president obama receiving 53%. mitt romney 43%, ten-point diff
challenger mitt romney and paul ryan sat down with karl come ron. >> he asked romney and ryan if they think the president downplayed the situation for political purposes. >> i think what the president said the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road he badly miss understands what's happening not just the diplomats but muslim brother becoming president of egypt, iran moving toward nuclear capabilities. they are far from being pumps in the road. >> i would sass this is part of a story when we project weakness by cutting military with defense cut by equivocating when we speak overseas about these issues it projects weakness. and when america projects weakness our adversaries are more willing to pass us more of an incentive to attack us. allies have less reason to trust us. with the projection of weakness we disagree with that. we believe with speaking with moral clarity and purpose overseas so we are res lieutenant. if we are res lieutenant allies will be more willing to trust us. >>> romney's campaign surrogate and former new hampshire governor also talking. he's hitting th
. governor romney made a joke saying he did not understand why airplane windows can't roll down after his wife was stuck in a plane full of smoke. he was mocked for being too stupid for understanding the see you evenings of pressurized cabins. >> when words captured on video in front of an audience are going to stick, when foot and will end up being a turning point in the election and end up being a defining thing that everybody remembers about that candidate. ultimately something always sticks. today, for instance we got this bit of mitt romney talking about the emergency landing last week that at a time was carrying his wife ann romney. >> i appreciate the fact that she is on the ground safe and sound. [applause] and i don't think she knows how worried some of us were. when you have a fire in an aircraft, there is no place to go exactly. and you can't find any oxygen to get in the aircraft. the windows don't open. i don't know why they don't do that. about it's a real problem. >> it's a real problem that the windows don't roll down onaire planes. is it also a problem that guns don't sho
